Digital Art Edition A Phrase from "Christ" by Bill Viola

A Phrase from “Christ” is part of Bill Viola's Transfigurations series that includes the installation Ocean Without a Shore (2007) created for the 52nd Venice Biennale. In this 35 second videowork we watch a man become transfigured by water as it cascades over him. 

Of Transfiguration Viola says

“...the word takes on its fullest meaning in the spiritual context when it refers to the moment when a person or an object is transformed not by external means but from within. The resulting change is absolute and thorough, affecting the heart and soul of the subject. Although the outward appearance can sometimes be altered in this process as well, it is not necessary. A deeper, more profound, complete transformation occurs inside, out of sight and, for a person it reformulates the very fiber of their being, finally radiating outward to affect everything around it.”

Bill Viola / Michelangelo is on at The Royal Academy of Arts in the Main Galleries, Burlington House, from  26 January - 31 March 2019.
